Three out of three for Priest. (Images Phil Nicolle).
The six mile Home Farm course seemed to suit Chris Gillman who had one of his best races to date but he was not a match for Priest and he finished a full minute behind. Carl Holden was a distant third but there was a good race between Andrew McArthur, Nick Mann and Jamie Ingrouille for fourth.
With Sarah Mercier taking a racing break and Louise Perrio withdrawing mid-race Jenny James was the fastest woman on show in the 4 lap/4 mile event from Emily Bookless and Mel Nicolle. Isaac Powers was the first finisher over 4 miles.
There were good junior fields and fourteen year old Gian-Luca Robilliard was first finisher in the 3 mile event from his peer Jack Le Tissier. Summer Woodhead won the corresponding 2 mile event with Jayden Creber holding off George Montgomery in the race for second.
